Ah interesting, thanks for clearing that up. Now of course the question begs what exactly has the FCC got planned for the 900/1800 frequencies then? The point I was making (if a little acerbically as I'm having a bad day) is that there seems to be all this space available, while both the GSM and TDMA companies are all trying to use the same frequencies, I mean even AT&T used UMTS on 1900 mhz I do believe. So Perhaps the carriers could talk to the FCC about freeing up the 900/1800 frequecies so they'rd be more space available for future expansions, and as Ludio commented, quicker rollout of the latest phones for the US and Canada. I'm sure others think likewise.
Put it this way: If those two frequencies were available, they would have been put into use by the major carriers. But they're not. They never will be...at least not in North America. And as I said before, you can use any world tri-band phone (or quad-band) on Tmobile's network (although I wouldn't recommend it in the future...the company is fleshing out their coverage with the 850mhz band)
